There have been changes made to the timeline for submitting a FAFSA for the 2017-2018 academic year. Students will be able to submit a 2017–18 FAFSA as early as Oct. 1, 2016, rather than beginning on Jan. 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit their FAFSAs as early as October 1 every year.
There have also been changes made to the tax information requirements for the FAFSA. All students are encouraged to click here and learn more.
